Snowy Hydro releases Submissions Report addressing response to Kurri Kurri power station

August 18, 2021

Utility Magazine:

Snowy Hydro Limited has released a Submissions Report addressing community, government and organisation responses to its Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the Hunter Power Project (Kurri Kurri Power Station). 

Snowy Hydro is 100 per cent owned by the Federal Government, causing controversy throughout its planning process for the proposed plant – mostly surrounding use of fossil fuels, suggestions the project is uncalled for and concerns regarding Aboriginal cultural heritage. 

The Federal Government is proposing the power plant to replace the AGL’s coal-fired power plant located in Liddell, which is set to close in 2023. 

The EIS and its supporting technical studies cover these issues, and the Submissions Report provides further information where new issues were raised or clarifications on issues already addressed.
